We Discuss Things Online. Join and Introduce Yourself.

Can't make it to a meetup? No problem. We collaborate on projects, ask for help, and post wins to our Code for Newark forum where you can get new posts in email and reply. We welcome anyone to sign-up... you might just see something you're interested in helping with.

Code for America Brigade

Want To Help Your City? Good, we could use your help.

We are a Code for America Brigade, which means we're volunteers that contribute our talents toward improving the way our local governments and community organizations use the web. Brigade is about action and you're here because you are someone who takes action. See what kind of things brigades do, or watch the inspirational TED talk given by Jennifer Pahlka, the founder of Code for America.
